Welcome to the ATC

ATC—A HELPING HAND

Welcome to our new Antioch Traveling Closet website!

The Antioch Traveling Closet Corporation NFP is a non-for profit organization founded by Antioch resident, Lisa Fisher, that helps local families in need of clothing, toiletries, cleaning supplies, hair cuts, and schools supplies.

The Antioch Traveling Closet was formed in 2014 with a recruited handful of volunteers that has quickly grown to a widespread community effort supported through local businesses and caring residents.

The ATC Corp NFP is now a 501(c)(3) organization.


We Need Your Help!

For the past year we were fortunate enough to have our storage unit paid for by the Antioch Lions Club and the Antioch Firefighters Association. Click here to see the AFFA donation presentation photos.

Starting now, however, we’ll have to start paying the $160.00 monthly rental for our 10’x30′ storage unit through other donation sources. We need your help! If we continue to pay the monthly rental for the unit we will not be able to help families the way we want to.

Ideally and realistically, we would like to have a location where we are not only able to store our donations but also be able to hold the giveaway events. With a facility such as that we could hold more giveaways for the area’s struggling families.

Please consider donating to keep the ATC alive and functioning. We appreciate all donations big and small! Donations are tax-deductible! PayPal and all major credit cards are accepted. The Antioch Traveling Closet is a 501(c)(3) organization.

Thank you and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
